    Default Re: Disk Defrag problem

    I am not at my computer as I am away but seach for the AUSLOGIC 3rd party defragmenter

    It is quite good and may work. There are a few other freee ones but I cannot bring the names to mind.

    A general search may turn up others

    Yes, it is a very good - and free - defragger. Much better than Windows defragger. Download here:

    This is what I do all the time. Press Ctrl Alt Del to go into Task Manager. But if you are not confident with computers, you may not want to try this.

    I suggest that you go to the bottom right System Tray and right click all icons to Exit or Shut Down all running programs. Of course be sure you are not connected to the Internet before you disable the antivirus, etc.

    Using the free Auslogics defragger should work without shutting down programs but it is still best to run any defragger with everything closed.

    How did it go Jen12 ? I have the same problem but do not wish to download another defrag program. I have been using "Diskeeper" for ages and it has always worked just fine till about 14 days ago.

    I' d say that an instruction to run Chkdsk is somehow in the MBR of your drive. Run Gdisk-or something similar- to re-initialize MBR. Can also do it from the Recovery Console...

    "Disk Defrag. has detected that Chkdsk is scheduled to run on the volume (C Please run Chkdsk/f

    So I tried chkdsk and it came up with this message...

    "Chkdsk cannot run because volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked next time the system restarts?"

    I have checked my scheduled items and there is nothing scheduled at all. I have also tried answering yes to the above and rea\starting the computer...also no luck.

    Any suggestions?? any?? Im trying to avoid taking it to a repair shop. Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Jen
    Jen, go to "run" and type msconfig. Now go to the Boot.ini tab and tick the /safeboot box. Now reboot and your problem should be solved. P.S. I had this same problem a while back and this seemed to work. I hope I am remembering correctly how I fixed it
